Design is one of those things that pervades through every aspect of our lives, yet is something that we don't usually think too heavily about. Everything you're using - from your phone, to your shoes, to your stove at home - all underwent a design process where someone sat and thought about how to best incorporate form and functionality into a product. Generally speaking, we only really think of design when something goes wrong. Maybe the shape of your in-ear headphones is just too weird to fit in your ears, or that flashy logo on your jeans digs into your skin every time you sit a certain way. Those are all examples of design gone wrong.
Sometimes good designs are revolutionary, completely re-inventing something or creating something totally new. Other times, good design can be as simple as taking something that's been the same for a long time and showing it to the world in a way that no one thought to look at it before. That's what Seoul-based designer Kyungsub Shin has tried to do with his latest design for an upgrade to the humble wall.
